Teen pleads guilty to robbery charges

Posted: Updated:

Lawton, Okla._A teen convicted of robbing a man at gunpoint will serve six months in a juvenile detention center.

The teenager appeared in a Comanche County Courtroom Thursday and pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery charges.

Prosecutors say he was one of two men who pulled a gun on a victim and demanded money near 16th and Southwest Wisconsin in Lawton last year. After the robbery, the pair took off, but were caught by police shortly after.

The Comanche County District Attorney's requests to try the teen as adult were denied and he was convicted as a youthful offender.

The Office of Juvenile Affairs stepped in and offered to rehabilitate the teen. The judge said if the teenager does not complete the program successfully, he will serve ten years in prison.
